romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both camps downplayings the expectations. so much of life is expectations, so much of a political debate like this. one of the president's advisers the other day talking about, you know, the president's so loquacious. he's got to keep his answers tighter. and by turns, mitt romney's camp talking about the president's gifted oratorical skills. so they both can't be right, but i think both sides are relatively confident going into this. >> to hear both of them tell it, the other guy is the best debater since abe lincoln himself. mike viqueira, thank you so much. appreciate your time, sir. there are, of course, great expectations on both sides for next week's debate. the pressure is really on for mitt romney to knock it out of the park, as he entrance the debate, trailing in nine of

related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larry sabato, director of center for politics at the university of virginia. larry, historically speaking how big of a deal are the first debates really? >> well it can be a dig deal, jenna. of course governor christie was right. he got off message as you know because part of the amusing previous view to a presidential debate is the attempt by both sides to run down their own candidate. about how horrible a debater they are and the other side is so terrific. so governor christie may be committed a behalf by telling the truth. if you look historically, there is a pretty good chance that mitt romney can make up some ground. usually, not always, but usually the challenger to the incumbent just by standing on the stage and doing a credible job, can make up so
folks try to, you know, make romney out to be the king kong of all debaters and when the romney folks talk, obama is suddenly superman. candy crowley has an interesting take on all of this. let's watch this together. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back into the other direction. >> reporter: note to governor christie, no, no, no, no. sop for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy. like this. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy like this. >> we expect it all along that governor romney will have a good night, he's prepared more than any candidate in history and he's shown himself to be a very, very good debater through the years. >> reporter: since you're supporting romney, the candidate who

presidential debate. jessica, thanks. also in new york city mitt romney speaking at the clinton global initiative just ahead of the president. romney focused on foreign policy as well vowing he would link u.s. foreign aid to trade with help going to developing countries that remove barriers to investment and trade. he also discussed unrest in the middle east and said he would have a different approach than president obama. >> a lot of americans including myself are developed -- excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our em bass dor to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving towards nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. a year from now i hope to return this meeting as president having made substantial progress towards the forms i've outlined. i also hope to remind the world of the goodness and the bigness of the american heart. never apologize for america
from the first debate and now going to express the opinion, no matter how good governor romney does, the mainstream media will call it a victory for president obama, or a flat-out gap loss for mr. romney and joe trippi joins me now. you're not going to contest my opinion, are you, joe, that the mainstream media is firmly behind a second obama term? you're not going to give me an argument, are you? >> i'm not going to argue with you about where the media is it on this. i think, look, if romney gasps the media is going to jump all over it. and you know, so, i think if he has a good performance, stuart, i do disagree. generally what happens in the very first debate, if the challenger succeeds, and part of the reason is, just being on the same stage with the president of the united states with such a huge audience, i mean, there is no filter between, during the debate. there's no filter between what romney is satisfying and what the american people are seeing, that generally, i worked for walter mondale in 1984, everybody believed he did very, very well in the first debate against reaga
. and it was interesting to watch that the president's folks. watch out mitt romney is a strong debater and undersold their own cand date. what do you make about that. >> each side will portray their cand date the underdog . that is not the important question. which cand date will change the equillib rum of the race. we are seeing a equillib rum in the race. and governor has to accomplish more in the debate. but which of the two candidates will change it in his favor. >> or keep it going . dennis and mira, we'll wrap tup and look forward to wednesday night. have a great debate. governor chris christie has his message for the president. >> stop lying mr. president. >> lying? >> yes. >> >> gretchen: he catches people by surprise it doesn't stop not supposed to be in this country. but one state is giving driver's license to illegals. have birthday to zack. i have no idea how to say your name. he is 43. galifianakis. no. y foa limited time! try as much as you like, any way you like! like parmesan crusted simp just $14.99. i'm ryaisabell and i sea fd differently.

be of a swing to governor romney at the end. it is certainly not outside the possibility with the first debate coming up next week. martha: some would say that, there's not a lot of time left. governor romney said things are just getting started in his mind the other day. so debates are ahead and all of that to weigh in before people go to the polls. thank you so much, monica, doug, good to see you both. >> thanks, martha. martha: okay. bill: quick check of the markets right now we're trading up which is the first time we've been doing that all week up about 55 points in early minutes of the dow. 30 on wall street a jobs number out short time ago, showed a better jump for us. better drop. more than 25,000. we'll see how that works in the mix as we go forward throughout the day. 9:30 here in new york. martha: well, it could be a game-changer. less than a week to the presidential debate, the first one why karl rove says president obama's biggest opponent is not mitt romney in his opinion but the truth. carl on that. >> also on a bombshell report on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in liby
and the economy is set to be the topic of wednesday's presidential debate and mitt romney is going to try it tout his record at bain capital for a reason to pick him. the democrats are trying to peck up people who used to work bain capital, and a part of the election season, he was featured on a conference call with the now infamous, joe southic, a former employer of a bain company that later on claimed that mitt romney indirectly killed his wife and mitt romney deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter claemd not to remember and we also heard from mr. foster at the democrat national convention earlier this month. >> bain took over the bill, they loaded it up with millions in debt and within months, they used some of that money to millions, within a decade the debt kept growing and was so large the company was forced into bankruptcy. . >> as it turns out, mr. foster was actually regional director for the steel workers union who worked with gst steel, but not at gst steel and as there are two sides to every story. one former executive at gst steel says that what really happened when bain capital ca
expectations for the first presidential debate next week, in a memo sent to quote interested parties, romney campaign senior adviser, bette myers said, quote, president obama is a uniquely gifted speaker and widely regarded as one of the most talented communicators in modern history. this will be the eighth one of on one presidential debate of his political career. for mitt romney, it will be his first, end quote. really? obama is a more gifted speaker than oh, ronald reagan? paul steinhauser joins me now. you have the memo. read me more, we want to know. >> interesting not just the campaign doing this, the candidates lowering expectations. take a listen to mitt romney himself over the campaign trail the last couple of days. >> he's president of the united states. he's a very effective speaker. >> he's a very eloquent speaker. so, i'm sure, in the debates as last time with senator mccain, he'll be very eloquent. >> reporter: what they're trying to do is lowering the bar, expectations, so if mitt romney does better in this debates next wednesday in denver. >> caller: they will say it's a grea
, then mitt romney needs two things to get back in this game. one i think he can do and a good debate performance. make no mistake about it, mitt romney is a good debater. he won virtually every republican debate except south carolina where newt gingrich started off hot and stayed hot. mitt romney is disciplined, focused in a debate he sounds and loos like a president as he did in his interview with brine williams on education nation yesterday. he will have a good debate performance. two, he needs an -- some form of implosion or serious mistake by the obama campaign or some international event that doesn't rally people around the president but focuses people on a perceived weakness. i don't think either of those are likely to happen. in terms of a mistake by the obama campaign, they've always been fairly safe and cautious. if this were a sporting event, i would say they're running out the clock right now. >> running out the clock and, in fact, perhaps too cautious. you've got hillary clinton going to, perhaps, a dozen meetings with foreign leaders and president obama already out of he
, governor romney he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: i'm just okay i think a lot of people would say he's a little better than just okay. do the debates really matter? sometimes they do, 1960 they established john kenny as a bonafide candidate. we remember the reagan debates and the zinger lines he had. what happened with gerald ford, and al gore losing a lot of points to george bush in 2000. we could safely say again, bill in the overall these debates don't seem to move things all that much. >> it's must-see tv for all of us, we'll be there. john roberts out there in denver. martha: joining me now is a man who has observed many debates over his career. brit hume. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, martha. >> when you see president obama sa have that awe schukes moment -- >> they always play down themselves as a debater, we see it all the time. it's tiresome, predictable and meaningless. martha: what do you think of mitt romney with regard to the debates, how ready do you think he is? >> he raised his game as a debater between 2008 and 2012. he was pretty effective in
. also, what it's like to debate mitt romney. newt gingrich knows and he'll tell us about that and more. and after a multimillion dollar makeover, what's supposed to be one of washington's most beautiful sites is an ugly eyesore. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with one of the states that in just 41 days could decide the presidential election, ohio, is so important both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the way begins next tuesday. now,
screens. bill: governor romney will give a major foreign policy speech soon after the first debate ends. the first debate ends wednesday night, as you know. martha: marsha blackburn has also criticized the white house response. she'll join us on what she thinks should happen next. we are getting reports of another homicide bombing killing 14 people, two of them americans. the bomber drove into a nato patrol. doug mcelway joins us live. it was a couple weeks ago the u.s. suspended patrols with afghan soldiers because of these insider attacks. have these joint patrols resumed now? >> reporter: they have. they resumed last thursday and the insider attacks have also resumed. not only the attack you just mentioned but also the suicide bomber attack, homicide bomber attack. the motorcycle laden with explosives drove into that marketplace. critics say this attacks reflect an obama foreign policy that refuses to acknowledge the reality on the ground. u.s. marines are tying tourniquets to their legs in hopes of surviving ied attacks before they go out on patrol. >> we are going to get after this
that in next week's debate. that's theonventional wisdom. the romney campaig say it is candidate is hard at work consered the mt tth ave icot begins to tune in to the election. while there's so much hype around the debates, next guest says we're radically overstating the importance. in the guest spot is john size, associate professor of political science at george wasngton john, let's have at it. the debates you say really don't matter that much. why not? >> i think there's two reasons. one is just that they're too late. they're not that many undecided vors left and secondly the candidates are usually so well prepared that they pretty much fight to a draw and partisans think their guy won and i don't think undecided voters move much in either direction. >> let's go to an example i e c politics polling average, day-to-day for september 2004 and we see bush was ahead in the week leading up to the debate by a six-point average over kerry. kerry had the really well received first debate perfornce against bush and then end of sepmberhtens toes t two ps basically a four-point shift to kerry a
" is someone who's had plenty of experience debating mitt romney. former presidential candidate newt gingrich. mr. speaker, thanks so much for coming into "the situation room." >> thank you. glad to be with you. >> want to show you poll of polls as we call it in ohio and florida. ohio likely voters 51% said they'd vote for obama. 44% for romney. and the poll of polls september 16th through the 24th in florida, 50% said they'd vote for the president, 45% for mitt romney. why do you think it is that mitt romney doesn't seem to be resonating in these critical states at least so far? >> well, i think he has three or four big challenges. one is that for a long period the obama campaign dramatically outspent romney in resiesly those states driving home their image of who romney is. the second is that the romney campaign is yet to find a thematic way of explaining itself and laying out in a clear crisp way the difference between romney and obama. and i think that frankly is a problem. and there's an ironic third problem. both these states have republican governors. both these governors have been doi
to start the important week of mitt romney's quest for president and that would be the debates. first time people have seen mr. romney and obama interacing for 90 seconds at a time. >>> and goodness knows they have practiced enough. and it is an important moment particularly for governor romney. everyone has seen president obama a thousand times over the last five years. mitt romney has been seen but not in the context of the presidency . that's what a debate is. it gives a challenger an opportunity to stand toe to toe with an incumbent president x. we'll see if all . practicing pays off. >> don't be surprised if the polls after the debates. larry has a speech in baltimore at lunchtime. thank you for joining us live. >> thank you, steve. >> steve: straight ahead. admit it. you have a favorite child. wait until you hear what is happening to a father who admitted that. an american hero who tried to take his own life. dacota myer system here next with a story that no one heard until now. good morning. ♪ keys, keys, keys, keys, keys. ♪ well, he's not very handsome ♪ to look at [ sighs ]
. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate withhe president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvia that he can win here. >> you know, i've got l secret here. and that is that obama campaign thinks pennsylvania's in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania. we're going to take the white house. >> reporter: it could be a questionable move. not only does romney have ground to make up in swing states like ohio and florida, the latest cnn poll of polls in pennsylvania shows romney trailing the president by ten points. republicans have tried but failed to win pennsylvania in recent presidential elections. just ask john mccain who made his own last-ditch effort. >> there's just one day left until we take america in a new direction. we need to win in pennsylvania tomorrow. with your help we will win. >> reporter: now, it's unclear what kind of resources romney would put into pennsylvania when asked whether the campaign would buy any ads here, romney aide said
. it's hard to imagine mitt romney having such a stellar debate performance that he could really turn this thing around. >> are you sensing there's almost a rhythm of failure with all these events? there's a pattern of behavior? he has the opportunity, he doesn't take it. he has the opportunity, he doesn't exploit it. >> i think that's right. look, it's never easy to beat an incumbent president and to a certain extent i think the right and the romney campaign fell into their own psychology about how awful he is and how terrible a president and how no one could possibly vote for him without surveying with a nonbiased eye and seeing a lot of americans really like this president an want to give him another shot. >> professor reich, let me play you the president's response to something romney said on "60 minutes." this is important, sir. >> governor romney was asked does he think it's fair that he pays a lower tax rate than somebody who is making $50,000 a year and he said yes. i think it's fair, and i also think that's the way you get economic growth. i have just got a different vision a
i did not think romney would necessarily bring it up himself in the debates because it would allow for a very muddy back and forth between the two men. in debates your most effective when you can make a clean shot. and resonate with voters. my predictions -- romney will repeat his claim that obama cut $700 billion from medicare. during the primaries, the republicans used to claim that obama funded his health-care plan with $500 billion in cuts. how did it balloon to $700 billion? a simple explanation. the congressional budget office is in a new estimate based on a different and later 10-year time line. republicans decided to pick the biggest number possible. medicare -- spending is not being reduced. $700 billion -- that comes from the difference over 10 years between anticipated medicare spending, what is known as the baseline, and changes the law makes to reduce spending. medicare -- spending is not being reduced. $700 billion -- that comes from the difference over 10 years between anticipated medicare spending, what is known as the baseline, and changes the law makes to reduce s
